North Carolina native Jason Burleson is the founding banjo player in the 21-year strong powerhouse band, Blue Highway. 

"I'm excited to have the Jason Burleson Signature Banjo added to the Spirit Line of Prucha Bluegrass Instruments," said Burleson.  "It's an honor to work with Jarda Prucha and have my signature banjo as part of the Prucha family of fine instruments."

The Jason Burleson Signature Banjo is handmade in Prucha's Prague workshop, and features a radiused, 24-fret, standard width extended fingerboard and a "speed neck" with a massive resonator and Prucha's new one-piece flange. The finish on the metal parts is half shiny / half matte.  Sand-blasted nickel-plated parts are engraved with patterns corresponding with the mother of pearl peghead and neck inlays.  The mahogany banjo is fitted with a sand-blasted, engraved Kershner tailpiece.  The maple bridge with ebony plate is also radiused.  Custom upgrade options include premium curly maple and cherry wood, abalone inlays, top tension construction, black nickel, gold plating, and copper flash patina.
